Foreign Trade in 1950 



The outstanding developments in Cana- 
da's foreign trade in 1950 were a pronounced 
shift in the direction of exports and a sharp 
increase in the value of imports. Such factors 
as trade controls, changed purchasing poli- 
cies, and increased domestic production in 
overseas countries acted to reduce overseas 
purchases of Canadian goods, while high 
economic activity in the United States 
stimulated sales to that country. At the 
same time the active Canadian economy, 
strengthened by a record level of investment, 
demanded larger quantities of foreign goods 
for both productive activity and consumption. 
The effect of these changes has been to 
eliminate the sizable favourable balance 
which has characterized Canada s trade in 
the post-war period, but the serious im- 
balance in trade with individual countries 
and trading areas has also been reduced. 

The total value of Canada's trade in 
1950 and the value of imports during the 
year were both at record levels; imports rose 
about 15 per cent above their 1949 value. 
Eoth domestic exports and re-exports also 
established new peacetime value records 
during the year, although the increase in 
exports was only about 4 per cent. The 
average level of export and import prices 
rose during 1950, those of imports by a 
greater margin than those of exports. In the 
case of imports the price rise was less pro- 
nounced than the increase in value, and the 
physical volume of imports probably in- 
creased by more than 5 per cent. However, 
the price rise for exports in the twelve 
months may have been slightly greater than 
the increase in value, with very little change 
in the volume of exports. In the last three 
months of the year rising prices in trade 
were mitigated to some extent by the freeing 
of the Canadian dollar on October 2. 

Exports Rise to United States 

The United States took about 65 per cent 
of Canada's exports in 1950, a sharp in- 



crease from the 50 per cent taken in the 
previous year and the inter-war (1920-39) 
average of 38 per cent. The basic condition 
permitting this increase was the high level 
of activity maintained by the American 
economy throughout the year. Income in that 
country was at record levels, and production 
of the goods demanded by Americans ne- 
cessitated enlarged purchases of Canadian 
raw materials such as metals, asbestos, and 
wood pulp. In addition the high level of 
investment, especially in housing construc- 
tion, required large imports of Canadian 
lumber and shingles. Business and invest- 
ment demands were strengthened, after the 
opening of the Korean conflict on June 25, 
by the needs of rearmament. For the full 
year Canadian exports to the United States

were some 34 per cent above their 1949 
level. 

To a considerable extent the expansion 
of Canada's exports to the United States 
was made possible only by the sharp con- 
traction which took place in sales to 
Commonwealth countries and Europe. Ex- 
ports to the United Kingdom and most other 
countries of the Commonwealth were reduced 
by changes in their purchasing policy and 
import controls, and these were reinforced 
by the relatively higher prices of Canadian 
goods in terms of sterling which resulted 
from the exchange rate adjustments of 
September, 1949. In addition, the continued 
improvement in production in many of these 
countries rendered them somewhat less 
dependent on Canadian and American sup- 
plies of some manufactured goods. Somewhat 
the same factors governed the decrease in 
exports to Europe. Canadian producers also 
were forced to face increased competition 
from producers in these countries in other 
overseas markets, especially those of Africa 
and Asia, but despite this competition ex- 
ports to Latin America increased. 

Chart 1 illustrates the changes which 
took place in the export pattern. The growth 
in the importance of the United States market 
is particularly evident, as is the decline in 
the purchases of the United Kingdom, the 
rest of the Commonwealth, and of Europe. 
Despite the magnitude of these adjustments, 
however, no major problems of unsold export- 
able surpluses developed in Canada in 1950; 
the goods formerly sold overseas were 
largely absorbed by the United States and 
the domestic economy. 

Imports Show Increased Value 

In the case of imports, the increase in 
value in 1950 was the most prominent de- 
velopment, although there was also a slight 
change in their direction. This change was 
due largely to the results of the September, 
1949, exchange rate readjustments, which 
cheapened the goods of many overseas 
countries to Canadian buyers and made 
dearer those of the United States. These 
relative price changes were reinforced by 



increases in supplies in overseas countries 
which somewhat lessened Canada's depen- 
dence on goods from the United States. 
Nevertheless, Canada's imports from each 
of the countries and trading areas shown in 
Chart 11 increased, and the largest increase 
was shown by imports from the United States, 
although that country's share of the total 
declined from 1 949' s 71 per cent to about 
67 per cent in 1950. 

Canada s domestic prosperity and record 
level of investment were at the root of 1950's 
increased volume of imports. Imports provide 
many of the foodstuffs and consumers' goods 
necessary to maintain Canada s high stand- 
ard of living, and also provide a large part 
of the fuels, raw materials and manufactured 
components necessary to Canadian industry. 
The entry of foreign goods to the Canadian 
market was also facilitated by the suc-

cessive relaxations of the emergency

Trade Policy in 1950 

Government policy in 1950 continued 
to work for the removal of barriers to 
Canadian trade. As Canada's foreign ex- 
change reserves increased, the emergency 
measures imposed in November, 1947, to 
halt the then-dangerous drain on these 
reserves were steadily relaxed, and the 
last of them were removed on January 2, 
1951. Canada also participated in the 
conference at Torquay of the members of 
the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade, 
and in addition negotiated most-favoured- 
nation agreements with Venezuela, Ecuador 
and Costa Rica, Canada also participated 
in the negotiations leading to the recently- 
announced liberalization of imports by the 
British West Indies, which followed the 
improvement in the sterling area's balance 
of payments.

Bilateral Balance Improved 

Chart 111 illustratestheimpactofchanges 
in exports and imports on Canada's balance 
of trade with particular areas. A comparison 
of this chart with Chart 1 shows that Cana- 
da's exports to the areas with which we had 
a favourable balance in 1949 contracted, 
while those to the areas with which the 
balance had been unfavourable expanded. 
While imports from all these areas increased, 
the increase in imports from the United 
States was far less than the increase in 
exports to that country. The result of these 
movements was a sharp reduction in the 
previous positive or negative balance with 
each country or area except Latin America, 
and in the case of the "Other Common- 
wealth" group the balance changed from 
favourable to unfavourable. While there was 
a small increase in the overall unfavourable 
balance with Latin America, the large un- 
favourable balance with Venezuela was 

uced. In trade with all countries Canada's 
balance changed from favourable at $261 
million in 1949 to unfavourable at about S17 
mi II ion in 1950. 

Particularly significant is the improve- 
ment in the trade balance with the United 
Stares in 1950. Since the end of the war 
Canada hashad a heavy unfavourable balance 
on this trade, averaging $532 million annually 
for the years 1946-49. In 1950 this balance 
reached only about $80 million, a sum less 
than Canada s exportable gold production in 
the year. 

Commodity Exports 

The changes in the direction of Canada's 
trade were reflected in changes in the pattern 
of commodity exports and imports. In exports, 
the largest increases were shown in those 
products for which the United States relies 
most on Canadian supplies — newsprint paper, 
wood pulp, and planks and boards. Exports 
of fresh fish, beef cattle, and beef to the 
American market also showed sizable in- 
creases. The United States also bought 
more Canadian base metals - iron, aluminum, 
copper, lead, nickel, and zinc being the 
most important — but increases in sales of 
these commodities to the United States were 



Mi 



largely offset by decreases in sales to over- 
seas markets. Many farm products showed 
reduced total exports due to reduced over- 
seas buying, especially wheat, wheat flour, 
seeds, and eggs. Although bacon exports 
during the first eleven months of 1950 were 
above those for 1949, the greater part of the 
year's exports were of bacon bought under 
the 1949 contract with the United Kingdom 
but not shipped until January or February of 
1950. Heavy domestic consumption of pork 
products has caused a continued downtrend 
in bacon exports during the past three years. 

Canada's exports of many manufactured 
goods declined sharply from the 1949 level, 
which was raised to an exceptional total by 
heavy deliveries of locomotives and railway 
cars to India and the Union of South Africa. 
Overseas restrictions also contributed to 
the decline of exports of many manufactured 
consumers goods. Automobile exports were 
maintained only by heavy shipments to 
Australia, and besides railway equipment, 
such capital goods as ships, aircraft, and 
farm machinery showed decreased exports. 

Commodity Imports 

The greater part of Canada's import 
increase in 1950 was in industrial materials. 
Canada is dependent on imported fuels to 
power her industry and transport, and anthra- 
cite and bituminous coal and petroleum all 
showed large increases in value and volume 
over 1949. Vegetable oils,rubber, raw cotton 
raw wool, hemp and jute, iron ore, and tin 
were other raw materials showing significant 
import increases. Imports of such tropical 
foodstuffs as sugar, coffee, tea, and fruits 
were also greatly increased. The fact that 
so many of the products showing the greatest 
import increases are drawn from sources 
other than the United States was a factor in 
that country's decreased share in Canada's 
imports in 1950. Another influence was the 
relatively tight steel supply situation in the 



United States in 1950. In 1949 the American 
business recession eased steel supplies 
and permitted heavy Canadian imports of 
rolling-mill products and other items for the 
first half-year, but in 1950 that country's 
domestic prosperity kept the steel situation 
tight, and Canadian imports were relatively 
low. Not until October and November did 
imports of rolling-mill products show sig- 
nificant increases over the 1949 monthly 
average; this reflects in part the impact of 
the Korean situation on Canada's needs. 

Many manufactured imports also increased 
in 1950. Imports of electrical apparatus were 
influenced by Canada's construction pro- 
gramme, and imports of automobile parts by 
heavy consumer demand for this commodity. 
Imports of completed automobiles, chiefly 
from the United Kingdom, rose sharply, and 
played a major part in that country's success 
in increasing its sales to Canada. Imports of 
clocks and watches also rose significantly. 

Imports Highest in Last Quarter 

The time pattern of Canada's imports in 
1950 may also have significance. For the 
first four months of the year imports ran at 
about the 1949 level, but in May they rose 
sharply above that level and maintained 
most of the increase in the following months. 
In October a second sharp rise occurred 
which was maintained in November, although 
the December value showed less increase 
over the previous year. The first of these 
increases seems to have been influenced 
largely by increased imports of fuels and 
tropical products,and was probably strength- 
ened bythe rising pricesof tropical products 
at the time. The second seems to reflect 
the effects of the Korean crisis, and is 
particularly apparent in fuels and steel, and 
other raw materials. No similar increases 
have occurred in exports during the year, 
however, and it seems doubtful if the avail- 
able supplies of goods in Canada could have 
permitted such rises. 



IV 



Current Economic Conditions 



The latest available statistics indicate 
little change in the vigorous pace of pro- 
duction, employment and earnings. The 
increasing rate of defence spending was 
indicated by a recent Government announce- 
ment that military orders amounting to $700 
million had been placed during the first nine 
months of the fiscal year. Of this amount, 
$330 million was allocated for aircraft, $96 
million for ships, $50 million for electronic 
equipment, $50 million for motor vehicles, 
$26 million for armament, and $113 million 
for construction. While the increase in 
defence activity has probably aggravated 
the shortages of skilled labour and raw 
materials, it has involved little diversion t>f 
production from civilian goods. The aircraft 
industry, which received the largest orders, 
is expanding plant facilities in order to 
increase production, while the shipbuilding 
and armaments industries plan to utilize 
existing capacity. Further, because a sub- 
stantial part of the orders is being filled in 
the United States, the direct impact of 
defence spending on the Canadian economy 
has been correspondingly reduced. 

In the United States events of major 
importance occurred in recent months. 
Following the passage of the Defence Pro- 
duction Act in September, selective controls 
have been imposed on the use of essential 
materials and consumer credit. Further 
regulation of the economy in the way of 
overall price and wage controls is being 
worked out. A budget of approximately $72 
billion is now before Congress, of which $50 
billion has been allocated for defence. 
These developments are of major significance 
for Canada in view of the interdependence 
of the two economies. Both here and in the 
United States attention is beginning to focus 
on the growing shortages of material and 
manpower. 

Production, Employment and 
Earnings 

In general, the high levels of economic 
activity continue to be sustained. The index 



of industrial production for the first eleven 
months of 1950 averaged 197.1, a 7 per cent 
increase over the index for the same period 
of 1949. The preliminary November index 
reached a level 13 per cent higher than the 
index for November, 1949, while a number of 
its components such as rubber products, 
primary iron and steel, non-ferrous metals 
and electrical apparatus showed even more 
substantial increases in output over Novem- 
ber 1949. 

The first part of 1950 was marked by 
considerable unemployment in certain indus- 
tries such as logging and construction. 
Among the factors responsible for this 
were the easing of the backlog of accumu- 
lated demand, abnormal weather conditions, 
dollar shortages in sterling areas and the 
stiffer competition of European countries. 
However, increased demand in the United 
States in 1950 for such Canadian products 
as pulp and paper, base metals and lumber, 
along with the step-up in the defence program 
and increased demands for consumer durable 
goods, led to rising employment during the 
latter half of the year. The quarterly labour 
force survey in November, 1950, showed 
that only 2.3 per cent of the labour force 
was without employment as compared with 
2.8 per cent in the fall of 1949. During the 
same period, the total number of persons 
with non-agricultural jobs increased by 
110,000. 

By the end of the year, labour shortages 
had become apparent in certain industries 
and certain areas. The shortages among 
skilled workers were becoming great enough 
to hamper seriously the expansion of defence 
industries. Among the skilled workers in 
short supply are tool and die makers, ma- 
chinists, draftsmen and welders. Both the 
Dominion and Ontario governments have 
announced programs to encourage the immi- 
gration of workers to Canada. Applicants 
registered with the National Employment 
Service at the beginning of January numbered 
248,000, a drop of 50,000 from January, 1950. 
Most of those seeking employment were 



unskilled and semi-skilled workers. Some of 
these may be absorbed into defence indus- 
tries in the near future. 

Canadian labour income reached an all- 
time high of $6,678 million in the first ten 
months of 1950, an increase of 6 per cent 
over the equivalent period in the preceding 
year. On the other hand, substantial declines 
in the returns realized from the sale of 
grains were largely responsible for the 12 
per cent decrease in farm cash income to 
$2,169 million from the 1949 total of $2,457 
million. Most of the declines in cash returns 
took place in the Prairie Provinces. Totals 
for Ontario and British Columbia were 
slightly lower but there were advances in 
the Maritime Provinces and Quebec. 



to 189.3 in December, while raw wool rose 
from 156.4 to 304.3, pig iron and steel 
billets from 186.9 to 206.9, electrolytic 
copper from 129.3 to 164.1, tin from 128.4 
to 230.5, electrolytic zinc from 120.9 to 
199.0 and raw rubber from 44.5 to 164.3 in 
the same period. 

Common stock prices closed the year on 
an ascending price scale with strength 
concentrated in industrial issues. Between 
December 7 and January 4 the composite 
index for 106 common stocks rose 9.7 points 
to 152.1 (1935-39 = 100) for a new twenty-year 
peak. Mining stocks were firmer also, with 
the composite index for 30 representative 
issues advancing 6.6 points in the same 
period to an index of 92.7. 



Prices 

Price indexes reached a new peak in 
December. The cost-of-living index con- 
tinued its upward climb to reach the level 
of 171.1 at December 1, 1950, an increase 
of 0. 4 points over November 1. This compares 
with an index level of 161.0 at January 1, 
1950. Increases were registered in all sub- 
group indexes, except rents, which were not 
surveyed in November. Although there were 
declines in theprice of meat and eggs, these 
were offset by increases in dairy products, 
fruits and vegetables. The greatest increase 
was registered by home furnishings and 
services, which moved up 1.6 points to 
176.4. 

The wholesale price index for December 
rose to 175.7, an increase of 12 per cent 
over the January index of 157.1 (1926=100). 
The wholesale index of Canadian farm 
products rose 1.1 points to 143.6 in De- 
cember, but was still lower than the January 
index of 146.8. Important commodity price 
increases were recorded during December 
for iron ore, imported bituminous coal, steers, 
hogs, oats, wheat, linseed oil, zinc, copper 
and tin. The rise in the world price of 
essential commodities during 1950 was 
reflected in some of the individual indexes. 
The wholesale price index for cotton yarn 
and thread advanced from 164.4 in January 



United States Dollar Position 

During 1950, official reserves of gold 
and U.S.dollars increased from $1,149 
million in January to an all-time high of 
$1,827 million in October, a climb of 59 per 
cent. A reversal of this trend after the 
freeing of the Canadian dollar is reflected 
in a decline of $85 million in the holdings 
during November and December, so that 
total reserves at the end of December, were 
$1,742 million. In October, the inflow of 
capital arising out of Canada's international 
security transactions was sharply reduced 
from the unprecedented levels of August and 
September, but remained at substantial 
levels. Net sales of outstanding securities 
to the United States amounted to $20 million 
in October compared with $147 million in 
September and $54 million in August. 
Statistics indicate that only a very small 
proportion of the Canadian bonds bought by 
Americans in August and September were 
liquidated in October. Canadian repurchases 
from the United States of Government of 
Canada bonds in October were only $15 
mjllion, while sales continued to be higher 
at $26 million. These repurchases are small 
in relation to the large net sales of this 
group of securities in preceding months. 
Sales were $43 million in August and $122 
million in September. 



VI 



Recent United States 
Developments 

The developments of the greatest signifi- 
cance in the United States have centred 
around the defence budget of $72 billion for 
the fiscal year 1951-52 and the imple- 
mentation of the Defence Production Act. 

The outbreak of the Korean war in June, 
1950, launched a strong wave of anticipa- 
tory buying. The strong demand for both 
consumers' durable and non-durable goods 
was soon followed by an increase in retail 
prices and growing demands for wage ad- 
justments. Much of the consumer buying 
was financed by liquidations of personal 
savings and a rapid rise in instalment 
credit buying. The government's decision 
to increase defence expenditures and stock- 
piles of raw materials led to upward 
pressures upon the price of raw materials. 
It was this background of events that led 
to the passage in September of the Defence 
Production Act of 1950. This legislation 
gave the President control of consumer 
credit and real estate credit, power to 
impose price, wage and rationing controls, 
and power to requisition materials or allocate 
goods. In addition, the government could 
either make or guarantee loans for defence 
production. 

•Since the enactment of this legislation 
extensive use has been made of these 
special powers. Selective controls have 
been imposed on consumer and real estate 
credit; these regulations have retarded the 
growth of instalment credit and caused a 
decline in the applications for government 
housing loans. Tighter lending terms, along 
with material shortages, are expected to 
reduce substantially the value of residential 
housing construction in 1951. Supplementing 
these special measures the Federal Reserve 
Board raised the rediscount rate from V/i to 
1% per cent and announced increases in the 
cash reserve requirements of member banks 
in order to discourage the expansion of bank 
credit. 

Direct price and wage controls were 
applied temporarily to the automobile indus- 



try, while some other industries entered into 
a series of voluntary agreements to stabilize 
prices. These measures were intended to be 
interim in nature, while an overall wage and 
price policy was worked out. At the time of 
going to press, it was announced that price 
and wage controls, have been applied to a 
large segment of the economy. This infor- 
mation was received too late to be analyzed 
in the present article. 

A complicating factor in the institution 
of price controls was that the greatest 
increases in wholesale prices had occurred 
among raw materials imported from abroad, 
such as wool, rubber and tin. In moves 
designed to ease this situation, the American 
government has become the sole buyer of 
rubber, reselling to domestic users, in order 
to lessen the effect of competitive buying 
upon world prices. An agreement has been 
made by the United States, the United King- 
dom and France for the establishment of raw 
material commodity boards with a view to 
obtaining agreement among producers and 
consumers on problems relating to production, 
distribution and price. Other countries will 
be invited to join these boards. Among the 
commodities which will likely be covered 
are non-ferrous metals, rubber, tin and wool. 

The shortages of raw materials have led 
to restrictions in the use of tin, copper, 
aluminum, cadmium, cobalt, zinc, and nickel 
in the production of consumer goods. Most 
of the regulations restrict the available 
supply to a certain percentage of the metal 
used during a specific base period, but the 
restriction on the use of copper has been 
extended to 250 finished products. Loans 
have been made to the steel industry for the 
increase of productive capacity, and, in 
addition, the President has requested in his 
new budget a further $1.1 billion to expand 
the production of basic products in 1951-52. 

The President's budget estimates that 
the total fiscal needs of the government 
during 1951-1952 will be $71.6 billion 
dollars while revenues, under present taxes, 
are expected to total $55.1 billion. The 
President has asked Congress to increase 
taxes by the difference of $16.5 billion. 
Military services are expected to need $41.4 



VII 



billion while $7.5 billion is to be allocated 
for international commitments and $1.4 
billion for defence production and controls. 

The impact of defence spending is 
expected to result in a substantial curtail- 
ment of production for civilian use. A decline 
of 27 per cent has been predicted in total 
private construction for 1951. According to 
the Economic Report of the President, about 
10 per cent of steel output is expected to be 
absorbed directly by the national security 
program, while an increased share of the 
remainder will be needed for expanding plant 
capacity. However, national security re- 
quirements are likely to absorb a greater 
share of total supplies of essential materials 
such as copper, aluminum, rubber, and wool, 
with perhaps as much as one-third being 
allocated for this purpose. 

Canadian Production and 
Imports of Raw Materials 

Canada's position with regard to raw 
materials differs from that of the United 
States in that she is an importer of steel 
and an exporter of copper, nickel, lead, 
zinc and aluminum. Like the United States, 
however, she also relies upon world markets 
to supply part of her needs of rubber, wool, 
and tin. Canada is one of the world's leading 
producers of strategic metals, standing 
first in the production of nickel, second in 
aluminum and zinc, and fourth in copper and 
and lead. In the last two decades, she has 
become one of the world's greatest exporters 
of these metals. Several factors are re- 
sponsible for this development: the expansion 
of output to meet the needs of the last war, 
the decline in American production in recent 
years, the reduction of American tariffs, the 
depletion of other known world sources of 
non-ferrous metals, and the American govern- 
ment's stockpiling program. 



Figures released for 1950 indicate that 
the annual production of copper declined 
from 527 million pounds in 1949 to 524 
million in 1950. A slight decline also oc- 
curred in the production of iron ore and 
nickel, while the output of cobalt, lead, tin 
and zinc increased. Except for zinc and iron 
ore, the production of other metals has been 
running below the peak production of war- 
time. Although demand has increased, it 
may be difficult to push up the production 
of metals such as nickel because of the 
need to work lower grade ores. As a pre- 
liminary step towards ensuring that adequate 
supplies of copper, nickel, and other base 
metals will be available for essential mili- 
tary and civilian use, the government has 
appointed a non-ferrous metals director. 



Despite increased world demand, the 
monthly imports of natural rubber for the 
first ten months of 1950 averaged 8.39 
million pounds as compared with average 
monthly imports of 7.48 million pounds in 
1949. The production of synthetic rubber 
increased from a 1949 monthly average of 
8.71 million pounds to a monthly average of 
10.84 million pounds in the first eleven 
months of 1950. The greatest use of syn- 
thetic rubber occurred in 1945 when the 
consumption was six times that of natural 
rubber. In 1949, the use of synthetic rubber 
was only 47 per cent of natural, while in 
the first eleven months of 1950 this ratio 
increased to 49 per cent. 



In the first 10 months the imports of raw 
wool amounted to 43.0 million pounds com- 
pared to 38.5 million in the same period of 
1949. Imports of tin during this period 
showed a similar increase, rising from 
7.2 million pounds in 1949 to 8.4 million 
in 1950.

Note: These figures have been revised in order that all industries and industry groups may coincide with the 
Standard Industrial Classification. In many cases, individual firms have been changed from one industry 
to another, corresponding with the new definitions of industries. For more detail on types of firms included 
together with revised monthly figures for 1948, see the December "Report on Inventories and Shipments 
by Manufacturing Industries". 

Estimated inventories for all industries and inventories and shipments for selected industries.

Monthly totals of 1948 aie not equivalent to annual data due to receipt of additional statistics which cannot be 

allocated by months. 
Excluding producers' interchange. 

Prior to 1946, exports include pigs, ingots, blooms, billets and rolling mill products. 
Prior to 1946, imports include castings and forgings and rolling mill products. Since 1946, they include, in 

addition to all other shapes, wire and wire rope. A substantial part of the imports appears after rebanishing 

in total shipments. Production of primary iron and steel shapes from Canadian steel is equivalent to about 

72 percent of the total production of ingots.

The coverage was extended to 507 municipalities in 1948, and to 523 in January 1950, minor revision still 
being required in the table, due to the non-receipt oi returns from a few small places. No account is 
taken of the building activity outside of registration areas. Actual operations normally follow the granting 
of permits but a number of projects are not undertaken or abandoned. The amount depends upon the 
statement of the applicant and considerable change may develop before the completion of the operation. 
2 As of January 1950, Newfoundland is included.

(1 Official holdings of Gold and U.S. dollars are given as of end of year and month in Statistical Summary of the 
Bank of Canada and Annual Report of Foreign Exchange Control Board. 

,2 'Annual results are from the Canadian Balance of International Payments and monthly totals as given in Trade 
of Canada. In the balance of payment figures trade statistics have been adjusted to bring them closer 
to the international exchange of goods with each country, by using payments data or other substitutes 
in the case of certain special groups of transactions where physical movements of goods do not reflect inter- 
national financial transaction, — e.g. — special shipments of munitions during the war, and the ware- 
housing of Canadian wheat outside of Canada. Mutual aid exports are represented by financial transac- 
tions which in some years are subject to revision. Non-commercial items have been deducted throughout. 

'"'As of January, 1950, Newfoundland is included. 

">Does not include proceeds of 100 million dollar loan floated by the Government of Canada in the United States 
in August, 1949. 'See footnote of page 96.

Beginning with April, 1950, and the corresponding months of 1949 Newfoundland is included. 

The annual statistics embrace all steam railways, and monthly data refer to railways with annual operating 
revenues of $500,000 or over. 

Operating income equals operating revenues less operating expenses adjusted for tax accruals and rent 
of equipment and joint facilities. 3 For the Canadian National and the Canadian Pacific, retroactive wage 
increases, totalling $29,085,087, paid in September 1948, were not included in that month's operating 
expenses. Payrolls as now reported monthly are according to the new wage scale.

National Income, Production, and 
Expenditure in 1950 



The behaviour of significant economic 
indicators during 1950 has been noted and 
appraised in recent issues of the Review. 
It is now possible, however, to present an 
account of the nation's economic activity 
in 1950 which summarizes in quantitative 
terms the main lines and directions of econo- 
mic growth. 1 The National Accounts provide 
a measure of the value of the nation's total 
production of goods and services and show 
the source of the nation's earnings from cur- 
rent productive activity; in addition, they 
indicate the manner in which this production 
is utilized by major spending groups. 

Gross Notional Product and 
National Income 

The value ofgoods and services produced 
in Canada in 1950, as measured by the Gross 
National Product, reached a record total of 
$17.7 billion, a gain of 8 per cent over 1949. 
Although a substantial part of this increase 
was due to a rise in the price level, nearly 
one-half of the gain represented an increase 
in the volume of goods and services pro- 
duced. 

The nation's output in 1950 was produced 
by an employed labour force, which, on the 
basis of the average of the four quarterly la- 
bour force surveys, was approximately the 
same as that employed in 1949. There was, 
however, a notable increase in the number of 
paid workers in non-agricultural employment 
and a decline in the number of paid workers 
in agriculture. 

The National Income, that is, the nation's 
earnings from current production, increased 
by 8 per cent, from $13,167 million in 1949 
to $14,164 million in 1950. The composition 
of the National Income by distributive shares 
is illustrated by Chart 1. 



1. National Accounts, Income and Expenditure, Pre- 
liminary 1950, DBS, Feb. 1951, 7 pages. 



Salaries, wages and supplementary labour 
income, which is the largest single compon- 
ent of National Income, showed a gain of 6 
per cent over 1949, rising from $7,800 million 
to $8,300 million in 1950. High levels of em- 
ployment combined with an increase in aver- 
age hourly earnings were mainly responsible 
for the rise in labour income. Most of the 
major industrial groups shared in this in- 
crease with the exception of agriculture. As 
indicated above, this industry experienced 
a decline in* the number of farm workers. 

Military pay and allowances, a relatively 
small component of the National Income, 
showed a substantial gain of approximately 
19 per cent over 1949. This gain is account- 
ed for by the expansion of Canada's armed 
forces. 

Investment income, which includes cor- 
poration profits, interest receipts, dividends 
on stocks, and rents from real estate, show- 
ed the largest percentage increase, rising 
by 21 per cent from $2,365 million in 1949 
to $2,852 million in 1950. Corporation pro- 
fits rose substantially, while net rents re- 
ceived by individuals and trading profits 
of government business enterprises also 
showed notable gains. 

Net income of farm operators from farm 
production was somewhat lower in 1950 than 
in 1949. Farm cash income was substantially 
lower, mainly as a result of a lower initial 
payment price for wheat, and lower equaliza- 
tion and participation payments from the 
Canadian Wheat Board. At the same time, 
operating expenses were higher in 1950 than 
in 1949. However, there occurred a substan- 
tial accumulation of inventories held on 
farms. The net effect of these factors was 
that net farm income declined by 6 per cent, 
from $1,513 million to $1,424 million. On the 
other hand, net income of other unincorpo- 
rated businesses, including professional in- 
come, rose by nearly 6 per cent, from $1,374 
million in 1949 to $1,451 million in 1950. 



The Gross National Product includes, in 
addition to the factor costs which comprise 
the National Income, indirect taxes less sub* 
sidies, and depreciation allowances and 
similar business costs. Indirect tax collec- 
tions rose appreciably in 1950 as a result of 
rising prices, a greater volume of purchases, 
and higher indirect tax rates approved in the 
September Budget of the Federal Government. 
At the same time, government subsidies de- 
clined slightly. Thus, indirect taxes less 
subsidies increased from $1,829 million in 
1949 to $2,001 million in 1950, a gain of 
over 9 per cent. 

Depreciation allowances and similar 
business costs rose by 11 per cent, from 
$1,321 million in 1949 to $1,471 million in 
1950. This increase is largely the result of 
depreciation allowances on the large volume 
of new capital investment which was com- 
pleted in 1950. 

Gross National Expenditure 

Chart II indicates the manner in which 
the nation'sproduction of goods and services 
was absorbed. The year 1950 was character- 
ized by rising expenditures on the part of 
persons, governments and business. Person- 
al expenditure on consumer goods and ser- 
vices, the largest component of Gross Na- 
tional Expenditure, increased by nearly 7 
per cent, from $11,086 million in 1949 to 
$11,810 million in 1950. Much of this in- 
crease was taken up by higher prices, but a 
gain of approximately 3 per cent in the vol- 
ume of consumer purchases is indicated. 

Expenditures on goods and services by 
federal, provincial, and municipal govern- 
ments, rose approximately 10 per cent, from 
$2,128 million in 1949 to $2,333 million in 
1950. At the federal level, the considerable 
increase in defence expenditure was offset 
to the extent of $50 million due to the fact 
that government commodity agencies liquid- 
ated some inventories in 1950 in contrast 
with the inventory accumulation of $32 mil- 
lion in 1949. The rise in expenditure at the 
provincial and municipal levels was mainly 
due to higher operating costs, increases in 
capital expenditures, and flood relief in 
Manitoba. Despite these increases, however, 
government expenditure on goods and ser-

vices absorbed slightly over 13 per cent of 
the nation's output in 1950, approximately 
the same as in 1949. 

Expenditures on construction and equip- 
ment for general government purposes are in- 
cluded in the figures of government expendi- 
tures on goods and services referred to ab- 
ove. The remainder of the nation's outlay for 
capital investment in housing, plant, equip- 
ment, and inventories, made by private and 
government-operated businesses and by in- 
dividuals is analyzed below. 

The value of new residential construction 
was $748 million in 1950, practically un- 
changed from the figure of $741 million in 
1949. Investment in plant and equipment in- 
creased from $2,220 million in 1949 to$2,375 
million in 1950, a gain of 7 per cent. At the 
same time, investment in inventories showed 
a large increase in both value and volume 
terms. In 1950 the change in inventories 
amounted to $785 million, compared with 
$108 million in 1949. Both farm and non- 
farm inventories shared in the rise in in- 
ventory accumulation. Taken together, total 
investment in housing, plant, equipment, and 
inventories by private and government busi- 
nesses and by individuals, apparently ab- 
sorbed a larger percentage of the Gross Na- 
tional Product in 1950 than in 1949. 

The value of imports of goods and ser- 
vices in 1950 was approximately $4,500 mil- 
lion compared with $3,837 million in 1949, 
a rise of 17 per cent. The upsurge of de- 
mand related to expanding defence programs, 
rising levels of income, and the progressive 
removal of import restrictions led to a mark- 
ed upswing in the value of imports from the 
United States. At the same time, a gradual 
recovery of production in Europe and the 
improved bargaining position of the European 
seller in Canadian markets resulting from the 
re-alignment of currencies in September, 1949, 
made possible an increase in merchandise 
imports from the non-dollar countries. 

On the other hand, the value of total ex- 
ports of goods and services increased mode- 
rately in 1950, from $4,004 million to $4,200 
million, or by 5 per cent. Although merchan- 
dise exports to the United States showed a

large rise of approximately 35 per cent over 

1949, this increase was offset to a consider- 
able extent by a decline of 33 per cent in the 
value of merchandise exports to the United 
Kingdom. 

In volume terms, total exports of goods 
and services showed very little change, 
while imports increased by approximately 
9 per cent. 

Personal Income and 
Expenditure 

Personal income is the sum of all current 
receipts of income, whether in cash or in 
kind. It differs from National Income in that 
it excludes all current earnings not paid out 
to persons, such as undistributed profits, 
and includes receipts which have not been 
earned in the course of production, that is, 
transfer payments such as family allowances 
and unemployment insurance benefits. In 

1950, personal income was $13,320 million 
a gain of 5 per cent over 1949. As indicated 
in Chart III, the increase is mainly attribu- 
table to salaries, wages, and supplementary 
labour income, but government transfer pay- 
ments and interest, dividends, and net rental 
income of persons also increased consider- 
ably. 

The disposition of personal income is 
illustrated in Chart IV. Despite higher per- 
sonal incomes in 1950, total direct personal 
tax collections declined by 6 per cent. This 
decline is mainly due to the fact that a sub- 
stantial part of the personal income tax is 
paid in the calendar year succeeding the tax 



year. Thus, a considerable part of the taxes 
collected in 1949 included taxes levied on 
income earned in 1948 when the tax rate was 
relatively high. As a result, total direct per- 
sonal tax collections were lower in 1950 
than in 1949, despite some increase in suc- 
cession duties and miscellaneous direct 
taxes. 

Personal expenditure on goods and ser- 
vices, as previously indicated, increased by 
7 per cent from 1949 to 1950, but there was 
considerable variation as between compon- 
ents of personal expenditure. Major gains 
were recorded for purchases of most durable 
goods, particularly automobiles, which rose 
by approximately 60 per cent over 1949. On 
the other hand, a number of components in 
the semi-durable goods group, such as cloth- 
ing, showed a decline. The increase in ex- 
penditure on food was almost entirely ac- 
counted for by price increases. Of the ser- 
vices, user-operated transportation, and 
household utilities including rents, showed 
the highest increases. 

The increase in consumer expenditure 
was the principal factor accounting for a de- 
cline of 4 per cent in personal saving, from 
$802 million in 1949 to $769 million in 1950. 
If changes in farm inventories are deducted 
from the saving figures, a much greater de- 
cline in the rate of saving is indicated. 
Thus, personal saving, exclusive of changes 
in farm inventories, was $604 million in 
1950, compared with $875 million in 1949, 
which represents 5 per cent of personal in- 
come in 1950 compared with 7 per cent in 
1949. 



Canada's 1951 Census in International 

Perspective 



As the result of a series of conferences 
and commissions, the 22 nations of the 
American Continent made plans during the 
1940's to take a census of their respective 
populations in or about the year 1950. In 
accordance with the terms of the British 
North America Act and subsequent legislation, 
Canada will take its Ninth Decennial Census 
in June, 1951, a date within the proposed 
time limit for taking the Census of the 
Americas. 

Historical Development 

The idea of taking a census of the 
Americas on or about the same date is not 
new. As early as 1908 the Fourth Scientific 
Congress (First Pan American), held at 
Santiago, Chile, resolved "that there be a 
common date for the taking of a census in 
all of the countries of the American Con- 
tinent", and "that to the extent possible, 
there be adopted uniform schedules which 
may facilitate the comparison of the results 
of the censuses in all countries of the 
American continent, and which at the same 
time may increase and improve the dara re- 
quired for sociological, economic and po- 
litical studies". Similar resolutions were 
adopted in 1910 at the Fourth International 
Conference of American States at Buenos 
Aires, Argentina, and at the Fifth Conference 
at Santiago, Chile, in 1923. 

The First Inter-Arnerican Demographic 
Congress, held in Mexico in 1943, re- 
commended: 

"that the American governments take 
the necessary steps to carry out during 
the years 1950 and 1951, a Census of 
the American Continent, and that, 
besides the strictly demographic aspect, 
it shall contain in integral form, the 
social economy according to the basic 
plan elaborated by the Inter American 
Statistical Institute and approved by 
the governments, without prejudice that 
each State, in accordance with its 



lespective administrative necessities 
and with its experience, can give to the 
above-mentioned statistical operation 
the amplitude which it shall deem 
suitable". 

The Second Pan American Consultation 
on Geography and Cartography, meeting at 
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1944, suggested 
an agreement between the Pan American 
Institute of Geography and History and the 
American Statistical Institute regarding the 
preparation of maps for the 1950 Census. 



The Third Inter-American Conference on 
Agriculture, held at Caracas, Venezuela, in 
1 945, recommended: 

"that each nation in the Western Hemi- 
sphere adopt the necessary measures 
for the taking of a national census of 
population and agriculture (including 
livestock and forest products) for the 
year 1950", and "that each nation co- 
operate with the Inter American Stat- 
istical Institute and with the Food and 
Agriculture Organization to the end 
that minimum standards of uniformity 
may be adopted tor such censuses, 
thus facilitating comparison". 

The First Session of the United Nations 
Statistical Commission, meeting at Lake Suc- 
cess, N.Y., early in 1947, recommended that 
the Economic and Social Council express 
its belief "that the experience gained in the 
preparation and conduct of this co-operative 
project will be of great value to Member Go- 
vernments in their own countries, and that 
it will serve as a basis for useful conclus- 
ions in possible projects in all countries of 
the world". This recommendation was short- 
ly afterwards endorsed at Lake Success by 
the First Session of the United Nations Po- 
pulation Commission. The Commission re- 
commended the use of comparable schedules 
by Member States proposing to rake a census 
in or about 1 950. 



VI 



The Economic and Social Council of the 
United Nations at its Fourth Session in 
March, 1947, requested the Secretary General 
of the United Nations to offer advice and as- 
sistance to Member States prepared to take 
comparable population censuses. In the fol 
lowing month the Inter-American Council o 
Commerce and Production, meeting at Mon 
tevideo, Uruguay, recommended support o 
the work relating to the preparation, publico 
tion and execution of demographic and agri 
cultural censuses to be taken in 1950. Many 
other international agencies and commissions 
have urged the adoption by American coun- 
tries in common of those aspects of the cen- 
sus, such as agriculture and education, in 
which they were primarily interested. 

Census of the Americas 

Most ot the 22 nations of the New World 
scheduled their population censuses to take 
place between July 1, 1949, and June 30, 
1951. More than that, they simultaneously 
made preparations for censuses of agri- 
culture, housing, etc. Greatest emphasis was 
placed, however, on the population census. 
Basicminimum standards for the census were 
developed under the auspices of the Inter 
American Statistical Institute (IASI), those 
for the census of agriculture being of major 
concern to the Food and Agriculture Organi- 
zation of the United Nations (FAO). Co- 
operative arrangements are in effect between 
these two organizations for integrating the 
agricultural census as part of the 1950 Cen- 
sus of the Americas and of the World Census 
of Agriculture. 

rVhatthis international co-operation hopes 
to accomplish is indicated by the publication 
of the Statistical Yearbook , prepared by the 
Statistical Office of the United Nations. It 
is the aim of the tables in the Yearbook to 
show for the various countries continuous 
time series which are as nearly comparable 
internationally as the available statistics 
permit. More detailed and comprehensive data 
on population can be found in the Demog ra- 
phic Yearbook , a publication of the Office 
of the United Nations in collaboration with 
the Population Division of the Department of 
Social Affairs. This publication is "intended 
to meet the need for a central source of de- 
mographic data (it) also meets certain 



needs of the United Nations and the special- 
ized agencies, and of national governments 
and institutions". It aims to treat statis- 
tically forty-eight general topics grouped 
under the headings (1) Area and Population, 
(2) Economically Active Population, (3) In- 
ternational Migration, (4) Natality, (5) Mor- 
tality, (6) Morbidity, (7) Marriage and Di- 
vorce. Every three months a bulletin enti- 
tled "Po pulation and Vital Statistics " is 
published, bringing the statistics of the 
Demo gra phic Yearbook up to date. 

Canadian Co-operation 

As has been pointed out, Canada's Ninth 
Decennial Census falls within the suggested 
period for taking the Census of the Americas, 
since it will be taken in June of this year. 
The interest of other countries, already 
shown at the Trial Census in October, 1949, 
is indicated by the projected visits to Can- 
ada of official observers from other coun- 
tries. A comparison of the projected forty- 
eight general topics of the Demo gra phic 
Yearbook , with the questions to be asked in 
the Canadian Census, shows the extent to 
which the statisticians of Canada and other 
countries have collaborated. Some of the 
material listed by the Yearbook , of course, 
will not appear in the Canadian Census re- 
cords, since it is collected on an annual 
basis by other means. This particularly ap- 
plies to vital statistics. Three of the groups 
and part of a fourth listed by the Yearbook 
contain such subjects as total population, 
population density, population of major ci- 
ties, population by age and sex, population 
by urban and rural divisions, number of hou- 
seholds, labour force by age and sex, and 
immigrants by origin and nationality. 

The Canadian population document for 
the 1951 Census contains questions on age, 
sex, household, citizenship, origin, employ- 
ment, etc., which, taken in conjunction with 
other data obtained by the enumerator, will 
make Canadian census results comparable 
with those of other American countries. It 
will be possible, in short, to tabulate Ca- 
nadian census information under the head- 
ings given in the Demo gra phic Yearbook. 

The extent of collaboration with the Food 
and Agriculture Organization in the Canadian

Census of Agriculture can be seen in the 
seven broad categories which were suggest- 
ed by Dr. R.H. Coats, Statistical Consultant 
for FAO, for inclusion in every census of 
agriculture. The suggested categories are: 

"]. Agricultural lands and their utiliza- 
tion, classified as (a) crop lands 
(areas under important grains, fruits, 
vegetables, etc.), and (b) pasturage 
and forest lands. The number and 
size of individual holdings down to 
assmall amounts as possible should 
be obtained, also the status of the 
cultivator (whether owner, tenant, 
sharecropper, etc) 

"2. The number of farm live stock (in- 
cluding poultry) classified by kinds 
and purposes; dairying. 

"3. Other material equipment of agricul- 
ture, including farm buildings and 
permanent improvements: farm im- 
plements and machinery by classes; 
mechanical power employed. 

"4. The current year's total harvested 
production by important categories 
as related to the foregoing, also, 
stocks and products on hand at the 
census date 

"5. General economic features, such as 
farm incomes; costs of operation and 
inputs including expenditures on 
seed, fertilizer, pesticides, wages, 
taxes, interest on loans, etc.; farm 
mortgages and other loans and cre- 
dits; crop failures in the census 
year. 

"'6. The farm population and its ele- 
ments: (a) the family of the cultiva- 
tor, its members classified by sex, 
relationship, and other characteris- 
tics; (b) non-family labour employed, 
number and characteristics, wages 
paid, etc. Recent movements of po- 
pulation to and from the land should 
be measured. 

"7. The social condition of agriculture; 
family consumption of products of 
the farm; other nutritional aspects; 
housing." 

In general, all of these broad categories 
will be dealt with in the Canadian Census, 



except part of the third and part of the fifth 
category. "Farm buildings and permanent 
improvements" will not be dealt with se- 
parately in the 1951 Census. "Farm mort- 
gages" will be asked only in the case where 
the farm is owner-operated, and no informa- 
tion about "crop failures" will be sought in 
1951. Much of the information in the fifth 
category is obtained in other ways on an 
annual basis, and information on these topics 
will not be sought by the census enumera- 
tors. 

The Canadian Census, taken together 
with the censuses of the other American 
countries, provides the framework for any 
scheme of Western Hemisphere food produc- 
tion in relation to the socio-economic re- 
quirements of the population. When the re- 
sults have been tabulated and published it 
will be possible to see how much the Amer- 
icas will require for the sustenance of their 
own populations, how much of the individual 
surpluses will be available for distribution 
among themselves, and how much will be 
available for export to other countries. Every 
country should be in a better position to 
appreciate the potentialities and necessity 
for greater production if one of the root cau- 
ses of international unrest and misunder- 
standing - maldistribution of consumer 
goods - is to be eliminated. Canada in parti- 
cular will be apprised not merely of her own 
position in the whole Western Hemisphere, 
but Canadians will be more conscious 
of the home market" and its potentialities. 
The Census of the Americas, to which the 
the Canadian Census contributes, is a part 
of the streamlining process bf endeavouring 
to make the Western Hemisphere more suffici- 
ent for its own good and at the same time 
contributing its share to the good of the 
world in general.

Note: These figures have been revised in order that all industries and industry groups may coincide with the 
Standard Industrial Classification. In many cases, individual firms have been changed from one industry 
to another, corresponding with the new definitions of industries. For more detail on types of firms included 
together with revised monthly figures for 1948, see the December "Report on Inventories and Shipments 
by Manufacturing Industries".

allocated by months. 
<2) Excluding producers' interchange. 
Prior to 1946, exports include pigs, ingots, blooms, billets and rolling mill products. 

Prior to 1946, imports include castings and forgings and rolling mill products. Since 1946, they include, in 
addition to all other shapes, wire and wire rope. A substantial part of the imports appears after refinishing 
in total shipments. Production of primary iron and steel shapes from Canadian steel is equivalent to about 
72 percent of the total production of ingots.

"The coverage was extended to 507 municipalities in 1948, and to 523 in lanuary 1950, minor revision still 
being required in the table, due to the non-receipt of returns from a few small places. No account is 
taken of the building activity outside of registration areas. Actual operations normally follow the granting 
of permits but a number of projects are not undertaken or abandoned. The amount depends upon the 
statement of the applicant and considerable change may develop before the completion of the operation. 

<: As of lanuary 1950, Newfoundland is included.

"'Official holdings of Gold and U.S. dollars are given as of end of year and month in Statistical Summary of the 
Bank of Canada and Annual Report of Foreign Exchange Control Board. 

<2 ' Annual results are from the Canadian Balance of International Payments and monthly totals as given in Trade 
of Canada. In the balance of payment figures trade statistics have been adjusted to bring them closer 
to the international exchange of goods with each country, by using payments data or other substitutes 
in the case of certain special groups of transactions where physical movements of goods do not reflect inter- 
national financial transaction, — e.g. — special shipments of munitions during the war, and the ware- 
housing of Canadian wheat outside of Canada. Mutual aid exports are represented by financial transac- 
tions which in some years are subject to revision. Non-commercial items have been deducted throughout. 

'•"As of January, 1950, Newfoundland is included. 

(4 )Does not include proceeds of 100 million dollar loan floated by the Government of Canada in the United States 
in August, 1949. *See footnote of page 96.

The Census and the Population Document 

Evolution of Census Techniques 



The Census which will be taken in 
Canada in June will be the most important 
since the first Census of the Dominion in 
1871. At the half-way mark of the century, it 
will give us more measurement of the progress 
made during that period. It will show us how 
we compare today in human resources, the 
greatest asset of a nation, and how the 
greatest of our primary industries - agri- 
culture - compares with the beginnings of a 
half century of development. 

In the second place, it will reveal many 
changes as compared with the Census of 
1941. In the interval we have experienced 
the great cataclysm of the Second World War, 
which changed vastly the pattern of our 
economy. There have been important shifts 
in population as between provinces. With 
the accelerated industrialization of the 
Dominion more and more people have moved 
to the cities and towns from rural areas. At 
the same time, the occupations of the people 
have undergone substantial changes. The 
population has also continued to become 
older on the average. These and many more 
changes from 1941 will be brought out in 
the 1951 Census. 

The 1951 Census will also be especially 
important because it will mark the introduc- 
tion of drastic changes in technique. Canada 
is introducing new procedures which may 
influence the methods of taking a census 
in other countries. Owing to the importance 
of census data and their usefulness for a 
vast variety of purposes, it is essential 
that the census be completed with greater 
speed. In the past it has been a time-con- 
suming process to produce the final results. 
The increased costs of taking a census 
make it imperative to find new means of 
shortening the collection and tabulation 
processes. The Bureau of Statistics has 
attacked these problems in several ways. 



Technique and Organization 

1. For the population and housing cen- 
sus, the usual cumbersome 'line' schedule 
into which all information has to be written 
is being replaced by a 'mark-sense' card 
for each individual. 

In a mark-sense document, the questions 
are entered by making marks in pre-arranged 
spaces instead of writing the answers in 
full. Special electronic machines read the 
marks and produce automatically, as an 
'end' product, a punched card. One great 
advantage of this new procedure is the 
elimination of most of the hand-punching 
of hollerith cards, which was one of the 
time-consuming factors in past censuses. 

2. The electronic statistical machine, a 
recent invention, will be used for the census 
compilations. This machine is far superior 
to anyhitherto available, including machines 
which had been invented in the Bureau for 
use in the 1931 Census and which increased 
census output immensely. The new electronic 
statistical machine can count and sort at 
the same time; it permits a wider range of 
simultaneous cross-classifications, and is 
much speedier in operation. The machine- 
processing of documents and punch cards 
for a test census taken in 1949 revealed 
that the hand-editing of documents to correct 
errors could be largely eliminated. The 
electronic statistical machine quickly and 
accurately rejects punch cards containing 
errors and indicates, in general groups, the 
type of error present on the card. Thus a 
much more economical editing procedure is 
possible. 

3. Decentralization will be an important 
aspect of the coming Census. Hitherto, all 
schedules have been returned to Ottawa for 
editing and processing. In the 1951 Census, 



six Regional Offices across Canada will act 
as sectional centres, controlling the enu- 
meration in their territories and supervising 
the office-processing of returns to the card- 
punching stage. This change has the ad- 
vantage of spreading the work of processing 
returns across the Dominion and of having 
the agencies which do the initial processing 
close to the area covered, where difficulties 
can be dealt with quickly. It is estimated 
that a staff of approximately 2,000 may be 
employed in the various regional offices and 
at Ottawa and the concentration of that 
number in one centre would create difficult 
housing and office problems. 

Changes in Census Schedules 

Since the first census of the Dominion 
in 1871 there have been significant changes 
in the range of subjects covered by census 
schedules - changes that reflect both the 
development of the country and the progress 
in the development of the comprehensive 
system of statistics that has been built up 
since establishment of the Dominion Bureau 
of Statistics in 1918. 

In the Census of 1871 there were nine 
schedules comprisingthe following subjects: 
nominal return of the living; nominal return 
of the deaths; return of public institutions, 
real and personal estate; return of cultivated 
land and products; live stock, animal prod- 
ucts, home-made fabrics and furs; return 
of industrial establishments; return of 
products of the forest; return of shipping 
and fisheries; return of mineral products. 
This list reflects the state of development 
of the Canadian economy and the dependence 
upon the census for much information that 
is now available annually and, in some 
instances, monthly. 

Except for some subdivision or re- 
arrangement of groupings, the subjects were 
much the same at each succeeding census 
from 1881 to 1911. On the other hand, the 
number of questions asked was substantially 
greater in 1901 and 1911, due to the demand 
for more detailed information. In the latter 
year the number of schedules was also 
increased to 13, breaking down the subjects 
more sharply. 



With the growth of industry, which was 
greatly stimulated by the first World War, 
and with the increased specialization in 
production which accompanied that growth, 
it was realized that many of the subjects 
earlier included in the census did not re- 
ceive adequate attention through only 
decennial enumeration. The increasing 
complexityof theproblems of administration, 
together with the needs of business general- 
ly and of workers in social welfare fields, 
also intensified the demand for more frequent 
and more comprehensive data on many 
phases of the country's economic and social 
activities. 

As explained below, the centralization 
of statistical work in the Dominion Bureau 
of Statistics provided the means for meeting 
many of these problems, and the coverage 
of subjects in the census was accordingly 
reduced. This change appears most markedly 
in the Census of 1921, in which there were 
just five schedules (one of which was a 
brief supplemental schedule) covering the 
following subjects: population; agriculture; 
animals, animal products, fruits, etc. not on 
farms; manufacturing and trading establish- 
ments; and blind and deaf mutes (the 
supplemental schedule). The censuses 
of 1931 and 1941 had a similar simplicity of 
pattern, except that in 1931 manufacturing 
establishments was dropped and the census 
of trading establishments expanded under 
the title of merchandising and services 
(changed in 1951 to distribution), and that 
a sample survey of housing was added 
in 1941. 

Relation of Census to Other 
Statistics 

The enumeration of the population re- 
quires a very extensive organization from 
the physical aspect, seeing that it must 
reach each and every individual within the 
country. Obviously, there can be no extended 
training of the thousands employed in 
collecting the information. The questions on 
the population and other census documents 
are mostly such as any person of fair educa- 
tion, after careful study of the regulations, 
supplemented by oral instructions and a test 



ii 



designed to ensure his or her comprehension 
of details, can explain to the people visited. 

When the inquiry is extended beyond 
this point, however, these conditions cease 
to operate in equal degree. Industrial pro- 
duction, for example, is so many-sided and 
complicated in its processes that no body 
of employees, appointed and instructed as 
the census enumerators, can hope to deal 
with it successfully, requiring as it does 
scores of schedules — some of them highly 
complex and technical - to cover its salient 
features. 

The centralization of the statistical 
work of the Government under the Dominion 
Bureau of Statistics has enabled the Bureau 
to solve these problems much more satis- 
factorily than when most official statistics 
were independently organized. The more 
detailed statistics of mines, manufactures, 
etc., which were formerly included in the 
decennial census, are now collected annual- 
ly by the Bureau, : n co-operation with 
various federal and provincial departments, 
by correspondence on a variety of schedules 
under a distinct part of the Statistics Act. 
Statistics of births, deaths and marriages 
are also collected annually - with a large 
proportion of returns monthly - by the Bureau 
in co-operation with the Registrars-General 
of the several provinces. In brief, the 
censushas come to be related to the general 
body of official statistics in a complementary 
and supplementary way. 

In the case of the industry of agriculture 
an exception is made. A large percentage of 
the population of Canada is directly depend- 
ent upon agriculture, and the ordinary 
population enumerator proves a satisfactory 
field agent for this industry, most agricultur- 
al processes being familiar and such as an 
enumerator chosen in an agricultural district 
can generally evaluate. In this connection, 
it may be noted that it has been possible 
to reduce the number of questions on the 
agriculture schedule in recent censuses 
owing to the fact that a very comprehensive 
system of annua! statistics on this industry 
has been developed. It is also to be noted, 
however, that the collection of current 



agricultural statistics is largely dependent 
upon the benchmarks provided by the census 
data. 

A census of housing was taken as such 
for the first time in 1941, as already noted, 
to provide much-needed information on 
housing conditions and facilities. It will 
be repeated in June this year, data being 
recorded for every fifth house. Here again 
the questions are such that simple answers, 
easily recorded, may be given. 

The 1951 Census will also include a 
survey of the commercial fishing industry, 
with a first stage in June and a second, 
more detailed stage planned for later in the 
year. The questions to be asked of fishermen 
in June are quite simple and the completion 
of the fishing schedule by enumerators will 
be no more difficult nor demand more train- 
ing than their other duties. 

The census of distribution (retail and 
wholesale trades and services), taken for 
the first time in 1931 and repeated in 1941, 
will be taken again in 1951. This census is 
required to provide basic data for the 
compilation of a wide variety of current data 
for monthly, quarterly, annual and other 
periods. It will be in two parts, the first in 
June and the second in the early part of 
1952. The part for which the enumerators 
will be responsible amounts simply to 
recording the names and addresses, type 
of business, kind of business and the 
amount of annual sales or receipts under 
three broad headings of small, medium or 
large. 



Changes in Population Census 

The population census is the one with 
which most people are familiar. Many im- 
portant changes have taken place in the 
design and purpose of this document. In the 
first place, as already stated, it is a "mark- 
sense" document. Again, a separate docu- 
ment or card is used for each individual. 
Thirdly, the questions, though fewer in 
number than in 1941, have been revised in 
such a way as to bring out more detailed 
information than was previously the case. 



in 



Some of the questions will be the old 
familiar ones relating to age, sex, marital 
status, etc.; others will be new and still 
others have been re-cast. Among the latter 
two groups are the following: 

Farm Residence Question — Among the 
new questions is Question No. 8, "Does 
this person live on a farm?" The question, 
in slightly different form, was asked in the 
Quinquennial Census of the Prairie Provinces 
in 1946, but has not been previously asked 
on the population census schedules through- 
out Canada. In 1931 and 1941 the farm 
population was recorded on the agriculture 
schedules and thus was not linked with 
other population characteristics. This 
question affects a very large proportion of 
the population that is clearly defined as 
the question is worded, and the replies will 
enable a study of the actual farm popula- 
tion - not possible with the 1941 data - on 
the basis of age groups, sex, religion and 
other classifications. 

Language, Immigration and Origin — 

Question No. 12, "What was the language 
this person first spoke in childhood and 
still understands?", is merely a re-phrasing 
of the old question on mother tongue. In 
1941 an explanation accompanied this 
question but it was insufficient to prevent 
confusion and misunderstanding. 

The answers to the question on origin 
will provide an indication of the cultural 
groups that go to make up the Canadian 
population. Formerly this question was 
phrased as "racial origin" but since culture 
rather than race is the characteristic to be 
measured and the term "racial" is mislead- 
ing it has been thought advisable to use the 
term "origin" only. 

Veterans — In 1941 the questions on *ar 
service produced information on the numbers 
who had overseas service, active service in 
Canada or, in the case of reservists, how 
many days they had spent in camp. Questions 
18 and 19 in the 1951 Census will give a 
count of veterans of either or both World 
Wars, including those who have served in 
other forces as well as Canadian. 

Labour Force — The questions on the 
1951 Census document relating to occupa- 



tion, industry, employment and earnings 
differ considerably from those asked in 1941. 
Under the heading "occupation, industry 
and status" in 1941 the enumerators asked 
the trade or profession, the kind of product 
made, or dealt in, or service rendered, the 
branch of industry, e.g., manufacturing, 
retail trade, etc., and whether the person 
was an employer, worked on his own account, 
was a wage-earner or an unpaid family 
worker. Those 25 years of age and over 
were asked what their occupation had been 
in 1931. Wage-earners were asked if they 
were at work on June 2 and, if they were 
not, they were asked to give a reason. 
Wage-earners were then asked the number 
of weeks they worked and their total earn- 
ings during the twelve months prior to 
June 2, 1941. 

On the 1951 Census document three 
columns appear under the heading "Activity 
during the week ending June 2, 1951". 
Replies to the question "What did this 
person do mostly during the week ending 
June 2, 1951?"will be recorded as "Worked", 
"With a job but not at work", "Looked for 
work", "Keeping house", "Going to school", 
"Retired or voluntarily idle", "Other" and 
"Permanently unable to work". All except 
those who answered "Worked" or "Perma- 
nently unable to work" will then be asked 
"In addition did this person do any work 
for pay or profit?" and, with those in the 
"Worked" category, will be asked "How 
many hours did this person work?". A 
period of time not too long, yet longer than 
that chosen in 1941 was considered desir- 
able for measuring the employment activity 
of those in the labour force, i.e., those 14 
years of age and over. This period,of "the 
week ending June 2," has the merit, also, of 
being not too remote in time to have been 
easily forgotten. 

For those who "worked", "had a job 
but did not work" and for those who "looked 
for work" the next question will be "For 
whom did this person work?". To facilitate 
the compilation of industry and occupation 
tables they will also be asked "What kind 
of business or industry is this?" and "What 
kind of work did this person do in this 
industry?". The enumerator will also ask 



IV 



if the occupation reported is the usual 
occupation and, if not, what is the usual 
occupation or activity. Finally, workers 
will be classified as wage or salary earners, 
working on their own account, employers or 
working for no pay. 

Wage and salary earners will be asked 
the number of weeks they worked for wages 
or salary during the twelve months prior to 
June 2, 1951. Replies will be recorded in 
ten class-interval groups: none, under 10 
years, 10-14, 15-19 years, etc. Wage or 
salary earnings - before deductions for 
income tax, retirement fund, pension scheme, 
etc., but including bonuses, commissions, 
etc. - during the twelve months prior to 
June, 1951, are likewise recorded in one of 
ten groups: under $500, $500-$999, $1,000- 
$1,499, and so on. 



To conclude, the most important change 
in the population document is to be found 
in the labour force participation questions. 
Fundamentally the change is from the gain- 
fully occupied concept to the labour force 
concept. The former was based on occupa- 
tion over an indefinite or unstated period 
of time while the latter is confined to 
activity in a specific week - namely, that 
ending June 2, 1951. The advantage of the 
change is that it will now be possible to 
show the distribution of the population of 
Canada in industries on the basis of current 
occupation. Comprehensive classification 
of the technical and other skills of the 
population have become of major importance 
in the expanding economy. The 1951 Census 
will provide the means for tabulating these 
classifications. 



Current Economic Conditions 



Despite seasonal influences, which nor- 
mally reduce economic activity during the 
winter months, industrial employment, pro- 
duction and trade are being maintained at a 
high level. Prices, both retail and wholesale, 
are reaching new peaks. Government meas- 
ures of major interest since the last edition 
of this "Review" include the passage of the 
Defence Production Act and the restrictions 
on the terms and conditions of consumer 
instalment credit. 

Production, Employment and 
Earnings 

Production remained relatively stable 
during the month of January, according to the 
index of industrial production (1935-39 = 100) 
which stood at 208.6 for the month compared 
to 209.2 in December 1950. This slight drop 
was due to the movement of the index of 
non-durable manufactures which fell from 
194.2 in December 1950 to 187.4 in January 
1951, the main declines occurring in foods 
and beverages, rubber products and chemical 
products. By contrast, durable manufactures 
rose from 263.1 to 269.8 as a result of brisk 
activity in the motor vehicle industry. Out- 



put of electric power increased from 201.0 
to 211.3. 

Activity in building construction in 1950 
was sustained at a high level with compara- 
tively little change from 1949. The number 
of new building units completed in Canada 
(excluding Newfoundland) was slightly lower 
than in 1949, 87,299 as compared to 87,533, 
but the number of starts was larger, 90,441 
as against 89,509. In consequence, the 
carry-over of dwellings in varying stages of 
completion at the end of 1950 was somewhat 
greater than a year earlier (58,850 compared 
to 58,169). There were increases in starts 
and completions in Quebec, declines in 
Ontario. The number of units under construc- 
tion at the close of 1950 was higher in 
Quebec, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Saskatchewan 
and Alberta. 

At January 1, 1951, the index of indus- 
trial employment (1939 = 100) stood at 175.3, 
a drop of 2 per cent from December 1, 1950, 
reflecting the seasonal decline of Christmas 
week. Nevertheless, the January 1951 figure 
was 7 per cent above that of a year ago. All 
industries included in the index registered 



substantial increases over January, 1950, 
except for a fractional decline in services. 
The favourable employment picture for this 
time of year is also indicated by the number 
of ordinary claimants on live unemployment 
registers, which stood at 220.5 thousand in 
January, 1951, compared with 297.2 thousand 
in January last year. 

Labour income for the month of December 
1950 showed a seasonal decline of $30 
million from November, which was largely 
concentrated in manufacturing and construc- 
tion, yet the total of $703 million was $61 
million above the figure for December 1949. 
Average weekly salaries and wages, reflect- 
ing the seasonal drop in hours worked per 
week, fell from $46.59 in the last week of 
November 1950, to $45.31 in the last week 
of December 1950. Average hourly earnings 
in manufacturing rose from $1,078 to $1,089 
during the same period. In both instances, 
the last week of December 1950 was higher 
than the corresponding week of 1949 - aver- 
age weekly salaries and wages by $2.98, 
average hourly earnings by 7. 8# 

Prices 

The cost-of-living index rose by 2.7 
points in January to reach a peak of 175.2 
at February 1. Higher prices for foods, cloth- 
ing and home-furnishings were largely res- 
ponsible for the increases. The food index 
rose by 2.2 points to 224.4, due mainly to 
price advances in meats and vegetables. 
Price increases in men's wear, piece-goods 
and footwear resulted in a rise of 5.3 points 
in the clothing index, while price increases 
in furniture, floor coverings and house 
furnishings accounted for a similar rise in 
the index of home-furnishings. Rents were 
not surveyed for the month of January and 
the fuel and light index remained practically 
unchanged. The index of miscellaneous 
items rose by 1.2 points to 137.0, as a 
result of increasesin items of personal care, 
tobacco, automobile tires and hospital rates. 

Wholesale prices were also higher in 
January. The general wholesale price index 
(1935-1939=100) was 233.8 compared with 
226.4 in December 1950. Important commodity 
price increases for the month were recorded 
for raw wool (from 468.? to 561.5), wool 



cloth (from 369.8 to 408.4), hides and skins 
(from 337.6 to 380.3), fresh meats (from 
355.1 to 383.5), livestock (from 392.9 to 
419.3), lumber and timber (from 414.9 to 
445.4), pulp (from 213.1 to 233,7) and un- 
manufactured leather (from 279.8 to 309.5). 
At the same time, seasonal declines occurred 
in the indexes of fruits, eggs, copper and its 
products, and lead and its products. How- 
ever, the magnitude of the declines was 
small except for eggs, which fell 18 per 
cent from 200.2 to 163.2. 

Retail Trade 

Trade activity was maintained at a high 
level in January, despite a seasonal decline 
from the preceding month. The total value 
of retail sales through retail outlets, revised 
to account for the effect of changes in the 
number of stores and kind of business since 
1941, was $674.9 million in January. Although 
this represented a drop of 29 per cent from 
the total of $94 1. mi 1 1 ion in December 1950, 
itstill stood 22percent above last January's 
total of $555.1 million. Increases in January 
1951 over January 1950 were general, with 
the major gains taking place in grocery and 
combination stores, department stores and 
motor vehicles. 

Recent Government Measures 

The Defence Production Bill, passed on 
March 9, 1951, provides for the establish- 
ment of a new Department of Defence Pro- 
duction to execute the procurement and 
control functions of the defence program. 
The powers granted under the Act will 
remain in effect for five years and will be 
similar to those held by the Minister of 
Munitions and Supply during the last war. In 
regard to procurement and production, the 
Act gives the Minister power to acquire, 
hold and dispose of defence supplies; 
manufacture or produce them; or operate 
facilities for these purposes. Funds will 
beset aside to allow stockpiling of strategic 
raw materials. The Minister may direct 
persons to undertake the production of 
defence supplies and may appoint a con- 
troller to operate a business if defence 
contracts are not being executed properly. 
The Act also confers upon the Minister the 



VI 



power to control materials essential to 
defence supplies. These latter powers are 
identical to those of the Essential Materials 
Act (Defence) which is to be repealed, and 
are already being used in regard to certain 
materials such as steel and nonferrous 
metals. In addition, the Minister may procure 
and regulate essential materials to be used 
for the benefit of associated governments or 
nations whose defence is considered vital 
to Canada. 

New credit regulations, introduced on 
March 13, 1951, under the authority of the 
Consumer Credit Act to become effective on 
March 19, restrict further the terms and con- 
ditions of credit buying. Minimum down 
payments were increased from one-third to 
one-half of the cash price in the case of 
motor cars and from one-fifth to one-third 
for other commodities. The maximum period 
for repayment was reduced from eighteen 
months to twelve months. 

The Motor Vehicle Industry 

Thefollowing is a brief review of various 
statistical series relevant to the motor 
vehicle industry. In 1950 production reached 
an all-time high of 391,000 units, of which 
285,000 were passenger cars. This repre- 
sents a 34 per cent increase in volume over 
1949, when the production was approximately 
291,000. Most of the increased production 
occurred in passenger cars. The production 
of commercial and military vehicles in- 
creased by 8,000 units. Total production of 
motor vehicles in both 1949 and 1950 sur- 
passed that of any previous year. The two 
previous peaks occurred in 1929 when 
263,000 vehicles were produced and in 1941 
when production reached 270,000. In the 
latter year the majority of vehicles were 
produced for military use. 

In the production of vehicles Canada 
ranks third behind the United States and the 
United Kingdom. The rapid growth of the 
motor vehicle industry in Canada has made 
Canada second only to the United States in 
the per capita use of motor vehicles. In 1949 
motor vehicle registrations showed approx- 
imately 6 persons to every licensed vehicle 
or 8 persons to every passenger automobile. 
For the United States the comparable figures 



are 3 persons per vehicle and 4 persons per 
automobile, while the United Kingdom has 
17 and 24 respectively. 

In recent years because of dollar short- 
ages, import restrictions and stiffer European 
competition, a much smaller proportion of 
Canadian cars have been produced for export 
than in pre-war years. In 1929, 32 per cent 
of all passenger cars produced were exported, 
while in 1939, 35 per cent went into export 
markets. In 1947, when full production for 
civilian use had been resumed, the export 
ratio declined to 25 per cent, while in 1950 
only 8 per cent of passenger cars went 
abroad. 

Conversely, the resumption of normal 
production abroad hasenabled many European 
countries to expand sales of automobiles in 
North America. This, along with the backlog 
of demand which existed after the war, has 
led to increasing imports of vehicles from 
abroad. Imports in 1950 amounted to 90,000 
vehicles compared to 18,000 in 1939. Of 
these approximately 83,000 were imported 
from the United Kingdom with the majority 
being passenger cars. This indicates that 
the apparent supply of motor vehicles avail- 
able in Canada for 1950 was approximately 
447,000 vehicles compared with 301,000 
in 1949 and 117,000 in 1939. 

In total value of production the motor 
vehicle industry has regained its pre-war 
position among the largest Canadian manu- 
facturing industries. The gross value of 
production in 1949 amounted to $488 million, 
an increase of $90 million over 1948. Geo- 
graphically, the industry is largely con- 
centrated in the Province of Ontario. In all, 
there were 11 establishments employing 
27,000 workers in 1949. In 1950 the average 
hourly earnings of $1.30 in the industry were 
equalled only by those of the coal-mining 
industry. 

Supplementary to the motor vehicle in- 
dustry are the automobile parts and accesso- 
ries industries employing another 17,000 
workers. The gross value of production of 
parts and accessories amounted to $170 
million in 1949, an increase of $30 million 



vii 



over 1948. Like the automobile industry 
itself, these establishments are also largely 
concentrated in Ontario. 

As yet the effect of the defence program 
upon the production of motor vehicles is not 
clearly apparent. The indications are that 
the output of vehicles for civilian use in the 
first quarter of 1951 will not fall below the 
level of production reached in the first 



quarter of 1950. Beyond this, civilian pro- 
duction levels will depend upon the supply 
of steel available and the extent of military 
orders placed. In addition, a large percentage 
of production parts are imported from the 
United States. Although American production 
at present remains at high levels, curtailed 
production is expected within the coming 
months. This may also be a limiting factor 
on Canadian production. 



Revised Indexes 



This issue of the "Review" presents 
two revised series of index numbers: one 
of wholesale prices, the other of employment 
and payrolls in the leading industrial divi- 
sions. 

The new wholesale price index numbers 
(Table 18) are calculated on the base 
(1935-1939=100). The main difference be- 
tween this and the former series based on 
1926 is the weight revision, i.e. the change 
from 1926 marketings plus imports to the 
1935-1939 average of marketings plus imports. 
For both series, marketings include domestic 
and export sales. The weights in the new 
series represent full value in exchange at 
all levels of the marketing process covered 
by the index: in the old series, by contrast, 
that portion of the value of materials which 
received further processing was deducted 
from group and the sub-group weights. The 
number of price series included has been 
increased from 589 to 604, and specifica- 
tions have been improved for many commodi- 
ties. The chief component material classi- 
fication has been retained so that the general 
index is still made up of the eight major 
group indexes, namely: vegetable, animal, 
fibres, wood, iron, non-ferrous, non-metallic 
and chemical products. Composite indexes 
for raw and partly manufactured and fully 
and chiefly manufactured goods have also 
been calculated on a 1935-1939 base, but 
purpose classification index numbers on the 
revised base are not currently available. 

The new series of indexes on employ- 
ment and payrolls (Tables 9, 10 and 11) is 
calculated on the base of 1939 = 100. The 
chief difference between the present and 



the former series lies in the classification, 
following the adoption of the industrial code 
provided in the Canadian Standard Industrial 
Classification. Notable among the changes 
arising from the transfer of the statistics 
to the new classification are: (1) the re- 
moval of central electric power stations 
from "manufacturing" and its inclusion in 
the group, "public utilities operation", 
which also includes gas manufacture and 
distribution, water and sanitary services 
and other public utilities (excluding trans- 
portation); (2) the transfer of certain railway 
maintenance-of-equipment employees from 
"manufacturing" to "transportation"; (3) 
the reclassification of certain types of food 
processing and their transfer from "manu- 
facturing" to "trade"; (4) the disappearance 
of "communications" as a separate division 
and its inclusion in the major industry 
division, "transportation, storage and com- 
munications", involving the incorporation 
of data for employees of railway telegraphs 
in the steam railways group; and (5) the 
transfer of employees engaged in mainte- 
nance-of-way and structures work from "con- 
struction and maintenance" to "transporta- 
tion, storage and communications". Other 
less important changes were also made 
within classes. One of these is the inclusion 
of brokerage employees in the bank and trust 
company group to produce the banking, in- 
vestment and loan class. The finance 
industries, inclusive of insurance and real 
estate, are now incorporated in the composite 
index numbers and averages. Weekly per 
capita earnings figures have been worked 
back for the year 1939. Formerly they were 
available only from June, 1941.
